  • Resolved petematheson


    I’m creating a new site ( which I’m creating custom pages for.
    So far I’ve edited the header and footer files, created a new page (/home) and pasted my content onto it.

    However, I still have the Page Title showing up.

    I’ve done it once before on my own wordpress blog but can’t remember how – and I remember it took me a while to search to find an answer!

    Can anyone point me to the quick fix to remove or hide the Title from this page?

  • Do not edit the Twenty Eleven theme. It is the default WordPress 3.2 theme and having access to an unedited version of the theme is vital when dealing with a range of site issues. Create a child theme for your changes. Once your child theme is active, we should be able to help with the customisation.

    Ah sorry – I have taken a copy of the twenty eleven theme then edited the CSS and changed the placeholder picture.

    Should I still follow that guide as above?

    Is the modified theme running as a completely new theme with a different name? If so, we’d need to be able to see the site – not a holding page.

    Yes it is.

    Sorry, my mistake

    That would help!

    You site doesn’t appear to be using any of the CSS from the theme!


    So – how do I get rid of the title?


    The simplest option would be to hide it via CSS.

    Do you know to which item I need to apply the display:none; style to?

    I’ve tried it on a couple but they don’t seem to hide it

    Try using Firefox with the Firebug add-on for this kind of work.

    Confused here, I’ve done that with Firebug and set the following in my css

    . entry-title h1 { display:none;}
    . entry-header h1 { display:none; }

    Yet it’s still showing the Title?

    On what page of the site are these titles?

    On every page that I create.

    It’s on my home page (

    See where it says ‘HOME’ at the top below the logo.

    Well, if you added that CSS to your site’s style.css (not the theme’s style.css file), it’s not being loaded – which explains why the title is still visible.

    Ah, silly little thing.

    there was a space in my . entry-title h1 css tags.

    changed to
    .entry-title h1 { display:none;}
    .entry-header h1 { display:none; }

    Now all working

    Thank you !



    1. Download and install companion plugin
    2. in your dashboard, go to appearance -> companion
    3. this will bring up CSS Override Editor
    4. enter the following code and save:

    display: none !important;

    WORKS FOR ME .. I would rather use this process … updates will not overwrite my custom CSS. ~peace
